Game On!: Week 1 is Over and Week 2 Begins . . .

Today I am posting my Game On! Diet update for Week 1! I can’t believe the week has passed so quickly. I have adopted some great new habits such as eating 5 smaller meals a day, getting 7 hours of sleep, drinking 3 liters of water a day, and exercising at least 20 minutes a day.

How did I do on the scale?

Not one pound lost. Or gained.

Am I discouraged?

No, not yet.

Why?

Because it takes time to kick start the metabolism again from its previous low state of affairs. I actually do feel stronger and more energetic from these healthy habits I have adopted for 4 weeks and hopefully longer.

How is my team the Twinkies doing and how are the two other teams, the Ding-Dongs and the Ho Ho’s doing?

We have some perfect scorers and then we have some not so perfect scorers. I fall into the latter group!

What do I like about this game/diet?

Well, the team aspect keeps me from having as many points deducted as I might normally have if I wasn’t participating with a team. Also, there has been some hilarious banter going between the teams: taunting and sending pictures of bad food choices to one another.

What do I dislike about this game?

I hate the fact that I can’t change my new, healthy habit that I decided on without incurring a 50-point penalty. I chose to journal each day and with work, blogging, reading, and reading blogs, time for journaling is tough to fit in.

What is something interesting I have learned in this game?

Well, I did find a new dessert that can be a complete mini-meal. It is made of low-fat ricotta cheese, frozen berries, maple syrup, vanilla, and chopped nuts. It is very delicious and healthy at the same time.

Week 2 has begun. Game on!

    Hey Fellow Twinkie — I wasn’t a perfect scorer either but the team aspect helps A LOT or I’m sure I would have had way less points!!! I’m still not sold on that ricotta cheese thing but everyone is raving about it so I might have to try it. And the team interaction is so much fun isn’t it? And like you, I didn’t have great weight loss but I FEEL so much better!

    Yes, Jenners, if it wasn’t for the team aspect, I would be dropping points. I have to have the ricotta cheese thing now at least once a day and breakfast is good because it is so easy and quick to make! I think this next week will be better! Darn those Ding-Dongs!

    Hey, what’d we (the ding dongs) do? It’s those Twinkies you have to watch out for!

    Good luck this week!

    Good luck to the Ding-Dongs and Ho Ho’s this week, too! I just liked the alliteration in “D those D-Ds!”
